All is well. The procedure today successfully took out the cysts, without taking either of the two brain cells I have. The surgeon has me wrapped up like a mummy, said wrappings to stay in place until tomorrow. The wrappings are more annoying than anything else (yay for pain management!).
It's amazing, though, how quickly we humans can adapt, taking the out of the ordinary as ordinary. Today's funny comes from the drive through at Walgreens...
We dropped off the pain prescription, then went up to Subway to pick up some lunch, to give them time to fill it. When we pulled back into the drive through, the clerk asked, "It was prescription for Werle, right?"
"Hey, she remembered us," I said to Pam.
Pam just looked at my mummy-like head and laughed.
And that was before I took any painkillers.
Maybe they did clip one of those brain cells after all.
The plan for the evening is dinner (microwave cooked chicken thighs over chicken flavored couscous - the ultimate easy meal), then more dozing in front of the television with an ice pack on my head. I may or may not sleep down here in the recliner - I generally sleep on my side, on the same side where all the cutting and sewing was done.
Many thanks to the staff at Columbia St. Mary's - everyone was kind and professional.
